The Big Picture episode 470: Religious Emphasis Day In Philadelphia

"The original release sheet reads:
USO-Armed Forces Religious Emphasis Day in Philadelphia covered on film for "THE BIG PICTURE" -- "Religious Emphasis Day" in Philadelphia in 1958 marked the second time that this city in cooperation with the USO and 40 churches and synagogues invited 6,000 servicemen and women to partake of traditional city hospitality in this most unusual program.
Armed Forces personnel from surrounding military installations came to Philadelphia for religious services, church and home hospitality, sight-seeing, and staged entertainment at Convention Hall during the evening.
THE BIG PICTURE camera crews have obtained in this film a good, comprehensive documentary record of a mammoth project, contrasting Philadelphia's past with the present demonstration of brotherhood and hospitality. The spirit of friendship and faith which has always distinguished this nation and its people is dramatically symbolized in this film presentation.
Produced by the Army Pictorial Center for the Department of the Army's series, the film has drive, color, sweep and a wealth of background data on the "City of Brotherly Love.""
